As an antidote to my previous rambling posts, here’s a quick fire ‘photo story’ of my SXSW / Austin snapshots, all from my phone and not really processed / cropped. WYSIWYG. There’s other pics in my posts, but I might include them all here with captions too.
For more considered photos,
My Instagram lives here
And for a run down of a more composed and architecturally informed Austin,
see my Flicker here As you’re probably aware by now, I rarely take photos of people or bands, so don’t expect any ‘fun’ SXSW photos here… El Chilito’s take away cafe on Manor Road near where I was staying. Where I experienced my first and best breakfast (Migas) Taco. My Migas Taco! Egg, Peppers, Onion, tomato and chilli salsa in a tortilla
An abandoned establishment on Manor Road Gun Fun ‘Progress 2’ by Luis Jimerez at the Blanford Museum of American Art Your Mum’s got… The Halcyon coffee shop where I recharged my mind and devices regularly during South by. I loved the glitter paintings by Sue Zola on the wall Meat Market. Literally Bucket drummers were a dime a dozen on the streets of Austin, but not many feature a dancing Iron Man. I think this is an agave plant that Tequila is made from. I drank some damn fine Tequila in Austin, and I loved the fact that cactus grow wild everywhere Queuing. You do a lot of it if you go to SXSW. I got fed up of it after a while, which is possibly why I didn’t see as many bands as I’d have liked, but here’s a photo in case you don’t know what a queue is like.
On my way home late one night / morning obligatory plane wing shot. check!
